Stretchy, Comfy Neoprene Vest Provides Weight and Compression

Our founder and occupational therapist Aviva couldn’t find a weighted compression vest for kids, so she designed her own. This vest was our first Fun and Function product and it’s still one of our top sellers. It’s like a reassuring hug, perfect for helping to calm down, focus or cope with sensory overload. The steady proprioceptive input and compression around the trunk are especially soothing for those with sensory challenges. With stretchy neoprene for a snug, comfy fit and awesome graphics, kids even ask to wear it.

  • Proprioceptive feedback helps to calm down, focus or cope with sensory overload
  • Hug-like compression encourages calm and feeling of security
  • Adjust compression on sides and shoulders with hook-and-loop closures
  • Supports kids and adults with ADHD, sensory integration disorder or autism
  • Made by Fun and Function
  • Ages 18 months - 10+

Getting Started

Includes 2 lbs. of weight: four 1/4 lb. weights and two 1/2 lb. weights. Additional weights sold separately (see accessories). Weights are safely positioned in pockets inside the vest and can be added or removed. Learn about the calming benefits of weights and compression.

    Weighted Compression Vest with Dolphin Graphic
    My daughter has this vest (minus the picture), and it has worked so well for her! The velcro allows it to be adjustable and comfortable. It's great that the weights are spaced out within the body of the vest to allow for even pressure. We have seen such great improvement in areas that are challenging for her.

    Love the Dolphin Vest!
    I love the dolphin vest. Got it for my daughter and she loves wearing her. It gives her the hug she craves and i can see that she feels more 'grounded' when she wears it. I'm very impressed with how well it's made - it's extremely durable. I highly recommend it!!
